Tolbert isn't Sproles. Let him go.

He can run with power on short yardage and goal line.Can Sproles do that? We are gonna have a power running game, Tolbert would be a perfect fit.
Bucs need speed out of the backfield. with a RB who can catch the ball. Tolbert and Blound aren't a good duo to have - they do not complement each other. There's too much redundancy in their games.
As far as I knew we weren't even testing the market on this guy.I guess we lost out on Peyton Hillis too.
The Bucs have already been in contact with Chargers free-agent running back Mike Tolbert, a sparkplug who combined with Ryan Mathews for a potent 1-2 punch in the San Diego backfield.
Who else is out there? Anybody is better than Lumpkin.
If we are going to be a power running team, we NEED a back that runs in a similar manner to Blount as the BU/rotational back. The third back can be your COP back. If we have Blount with a powerrunning game and he gets hurt and our bu rb is a fast, cop back, there goes the entire power running attack which has been our staple all off-season and all season. We need that 2nd guy who can step into the feature back role until Blount gets back.
